RuPaul's Season 5
 
"Alyssa looks like the alien from MIB after it ate that guy & wore its skin" leaving this truth here.

Coco and Alyssa's bitchfight is boring and they need to just get it out instead of darkly hinting about it every few minutes. Their drama is like the only thing that keeps them relevant since they're both so obviously basic, mid-season departing queens.

Detox needs to win, with Seattle's Premiere Jewish Narcoleptic Drag Queen second or third.

I actually love Detox from the Willam music videos, and I thought she did well in this first episode.

Alaska is such a disappointment. You'd think some of Sharon's subversive creativity would rub off on her, but she's just whiney and kinda bland.

This season is super fishy. Like catfish-y.

I would love Jinkx making it to the Top 3 :hearts: You have to think Detox is the big favorite right now.

She can be very witty and bizarre in some of her YouTubes. I think this is a lot of pressure for her and she is handling it EXTREMELY poorly.

Anyway. Should be a fun season (duh).

I was about to create a thread about this...im glad I double checked before I did. This season should be interesting...my top 3 are 1. Linesha Sparxx, 2. Roxxy Andrews 3. Detox. I dont see what ya'll see in Jinx lol she kinda reminds me of a prettier version of Tammie brown lol. I like Alaska as well but she does give me a watered down Sharon sometimes.

In order for Alaska to win, she really needs to establish her run separately from what Sharon did on the show. Even if she can do it better or worse, she can't be the weird ghoulish girl. Someone already did that and won.

I like Roxxxy, and I can see Ru giving her the title because she's a larger lady. I'll have to see more episodes to decide whether it would be worth it, but I don't think she had the best runway look this week.

Serena ChaCha = gross. To quote Miss Vida Bohemme, you a boy in a dress.

Yeah she's going to always be tagged to Sharon....it wasn't like that with Manilla (maybe because no one really payed as much as attention to Sahara as they did Sharon..RIP Sahara) but Sharon did win it. I do like Alaska though, she will not win it but she will do well...I think top 5 or 6. I think Serena cha cha will be the next to go....

Loved it! I think it will be a great season, and I loved the main competition this week.

Agreed. Perfect episode. There's life in the old girl yet.

This season has been really fantastic so far. It really makes up for the shit show that was All Stars.

I'm glad that boy in a dress is gone. She was insufferable. She was pretentious. And she was not a good drag queen.

Having said this, I really wish Detox had taken this challenge. I thought her runway look was fabulous!

I know. Detox should have won. When fake blood randomly started to come out of her mouth when she was playing Sharon I was screaming. That was one of the best things ever on the show. She looked great on the runway too. It seemed to be Kristen Johnston mostly; for whatever reason she seemed to personally have a problem with Detox. It reminded me of the Absolut Vodka guy last season just trashing Sharon Needles for no reason.

Serena ChaCha is basically LeRoy as a drag queen. Talking about "ghetto" people, flaunting his degree (an art school degree lol), etc. She was horrid and her last comment being telling the other girls to read a book. Lord. Acting like you need a 2400 to get into a damn art school.

Also Alyssa's complete lack of a jaw line freaks me out.

Maybe they're just trying to dull the obvious that Detox is primed to get very, very far on the show. KJ hating on her was weird. I find it bizarre when people say your confidence is too much. Like, why would I enter a competition if I don't think I'm good enough to win? And I don't think Detox has been behaving particularly precociously. The thing about the people who have won is that none of them (except maybe Tyra) really needed to be polished up - ever - during the show. It's not like Top Model where Tyra needs to shape these girls into models. The girls who get far on Drag Race are the ones who were on-point from the very beginning. It was weird to see Rebecca Glasscock and Tatiana make it as far as they did, but you knew they weren't winning.

This Roxxxy+Alaska+Detox thing is interesting. While I'm all for Detox not only finishing top 3 but actually winning, I'm not sold on Alaska or Roxxxy. I thought Roxxxy's breast plate was atrocious. I hope she did not pay 600 whole dollars for them. And I'm not a fan of her fringed nudity. Alaska has really not been amazing yet so I can't see her finishing on the business end of this season.
